Prophetic Dream: Now Is Time to Challenge the Gates of Hell

by | May 7, 2020 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

“They did not receive the love for the truth that they might be saved. Therefore God will send them a strong delusion, that they should believe the lie: that they all might be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thess. 2:9-12).

The delusion that is covering our nation and moving across the globe is mind-boggling. Common sense and conscientious governing have given way to a narrative out of the twilight zone.

Things we once considered only rumor and speculation about duplicity and corruption along with political malpractice are now being exposed and coming into the light. People are beginning to see the gross darkness that has been slowly consuming us from the inside out and the masses are waking up. The crisis has finally gotten personal enough so that those who once watched from the sidelines are now taking to the streets.

The question is, what is the church going to do? What will our collective response be to the rising demonic forces and anti-God agenda that is closing in on our freedoms? What kind of action is required from the ekklesia that will demonstrate the power of our God and the authority of our prayers?

Before the election in 2012, I had a disturbing dream concerning the principalities at work in the high places of our government. It illustrated the strategic role the church must play in this specific window of time. Though its reference was the previous administration, the larger message was what was happening in the spirit concerning the broader plans of the enemy and the urgent call for believers to take action.

I was shown dark shadows moving within the halls of the White House, manipulating those in proximity to power. Plans were being laid and events were being coordinated to coerce and control the masses. It was evident that what was taking place had been carefully planned, orchestrated and intended for long-term impact. There was just one problem—the saints were praying.

In the dream, I saw the dark shadows being alerted to the rising intercession of the watchmen and they decided to counter-attack. They released a nerve agent—a laughing gas—and it began to spread quickly. In my latest book, Moving from Sword to Scepter, I share more details about this dream and the spiritual implications of the warning:

“This wasn’t just a smoke screen. This gas carried the power to desensitize anyone under its influence. Not only did it blind them to reality, it actually caused them to laugh—to mock—to deny reality in favor of a fantasy.

“I could see that the gas was coming toward me and I tried to hold my breath to avoid it. I knew I needed to get out of this place to keep my head clear. When I finally managed to get out, I went to look for my husband who is a pastor. When we got clear, we realized that all the police who had come were now inside this high office under this fog. They, too, were being taken under by this poison! There wasn’t any other help around. We knew we couldn’t attract the attention of the enemy, but knew we needed to get the others out into the clear air. We knew that once we got enough of them free from the effects of this toxin, we could take the enemy out together.”

Upon waking from the dream, I knew immediately that the toxin that was released to the masses was a spirit of deception. Just like nerve gas is sent to constrict and immobilize its victims, hell released a spirit of deception across the land to hoodwink and paralyze anyone in its path. This poisonous spirit is continuing to envelop the earth, causing thousands of uninformed and ill-advised citizens to follow a socialist pipe dream and laugh at anyone who suggests otherwise.

As this great delusion continues to cloud our judgment and confuse the masses, heaven is calling on the church to rise up and change the atmosphere. This isn’t just about saving ourselves or our constitutional rights; it’s about confronting the darkness, clearing the air and breaking the spell. Just like oxygen neutralizes laughing gas, so does truth neutralize deception. This is the power of our words and speaking what is right, honorable and just.

“But we have renounced the secret things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by expressing the truth and commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. … For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Cor. 4:2,6).

Our charge is to speak truth in order for the deception to dissipate. Words from the throne have power and authority to clear the spiritual airways and nullify the fog of deception. In the dream, we knew that if enough of us got free and clear, we could take the enemy out together. This is the opportunity before us if we have the courage to confront the darkness instead of retreating for safety.

The steps we need to take in this process are simple:

1. Recognize what is true and what is false.
2. Repent for any agreement with fleshly reasoning instead of spiritual discernment.
3. Realign our mindsets with heavenly perspective and kingdom purposes.
4. Release God’s truth and hope to those still in darkness through our prayers, praises and proclamations.

God has charged us with changing the spiritual atmosphere. As we speak heaven’s words and become champions for what is true and just, the great delusion can become the great revelation. What the enemy is using to mask the truth can become the church’s greatest opportunity to reveal a kingdom yet unseen.

The devil’s smokescreen is no match for the fire of God coming through the mouths of the saints. Now is not the time to play it safe. Now is the time to challenge the gates of hell, knowing the King has authorized it and heaven’s host are with us.
